Mimio Named Finalist in 2014 EdTech Digest Awards Program

Cambridge, MA – March 12, 2014Mimio, one of the world’s leading providers of interactive teaching technologies, announced today that its MimioMobile™ app and MimioStudio™ software have together been honored as a Cool Tool finalist in the 2014 EdTech Digest Awards program. The distinguished awards program recognizes outstanding solutions and the best and brightest minds in the education and technology sector.

 

The Cool Tool awards are bestowed on the best new, emerging, and established technology solutions for education. This year’s program featured dozens of categories, including best new products or services, mobile (app) solutions, academic gaming solutions, emerging technologies, professional development solutions, leaders setting a trend, and more. Mimio is an honoree in the best ‘interactive whiteboard solution’ category.

 

The MimioMobile application fosters unrivaled student collaboration and student engagement by linking most types of mobile devices in classrooms, whether owned by the students or the school district. Once equipped with the app, Apple devices (including iPads, iPod touch devices, and iPhones 4 and up) and Android tablets and phones can work in concert for highly effective collaborative learning events, as well as for formative assessment.

 

The complete MimioClassroom™ suite of interactive technologies is used in more than 600,000 classrooms worldwide. The suite includes the MimioTeach™ interactive technology device, which converts any dry erase board into a fully interactive whiteboard; the MimioProjector™ interactive projector; the MimioView™ document camera; the MimioPad™ wireless pen tablet; and the MimioCapture™ ink recorder. Each MimioTeach system comes prepackaged with award-winning MimioStudio software.

 

“Today’s students expect a digital learning experience that meets them where they are and leverages the technology they are accustomed to,” said Manny Perez, Mimio’s president and chief operating officer. “At the same time, teachers are often asked to do more with less, so they are looking for digital learning solutions that are easy to integrate into the ever-changing classroom environment. We are honored to have Mimio recognized by EdTech Digest for the innovative way the company is empowering teachers to individualize and personalize learning, engage students with mobile devices, and ensure students achieve the academic success and personal growth they need to excel in a global marketplace.”

 

A distinguished panel of industry influencers and veterans conducted this year’s evaluation proceedings. “There is a great deal of talent and quality out there, and we’re excited to recognize these cool tools, leaders, and trendsetters in the education technology space,” said Victor Rivero, who oversees the program as editor-in-chief of EdTech Digest. “There are now thousands of startups, apps, and companies working in edtech – more than ever before. Shining a spotlight on the best and brightest, we intend to generate even more activity in this sector, to help advance a slow revolution for the benefit of future generations.”
